Deeply critical of a society in which relationships between men and women are reduced to power struggles, The Professor was Charlotte Brontë's first novel.

I love the use of the English language, so flowery and descriptive. The story gives great insight into the minds of men and women from that period, and the codes of conduct and protocol. Unfortunately, I don't speak a word of French, so some passages get lost on me.
This beautiful story and impeccable narration makes you feel as if you were a participant in a beautiful concert. Everything comes together in such a beautiful way- you won't experience such poetic writing or plot anywhere else. It's a loss for anyone who doesn't experience this joy .
"A Charming Romance..."
this posthumously published novel is every bit as good as the best of 1800s romance. Bronte at her best!
"The perfect narrator for Charlotte's great book"
The professor is so underrated!! I adored it. The narrator was perfect and I found myself absolutely entranced.
You won't be disappointed
"Least favorite bronte story"
Plot felt meandering. Actor tried but couldn't make it work. The bronte sisters have done so much better
"Life well-lived is affirmed !"
Very good story & narration. To think that Ms Bronte could not find a publisher until she had another book succeed is surprising. This is a sweet story about sticking to your principles and the resulting good life.
